Pennsylvania has a number of federally- and state-funded programs to assist low- and moderate-income people pay their energy bills and keep houses warm.
Low-income qualifiers are eligible for a state minimum $300/year credit on the primary energy bill used for heating (electric or gas, depending on your home) under the Low Income Heating Energy Assisatance Program (LIHEAP). If a member of the household is 5 years or younger, or over 60 years, the base amount increases by $100, and amounts up to $1000 for the year are available in certain crisis circumstances.
Moderate-income qualifiers may not be eligible for any LIHEAP assistance, but PECO in Philadelphia and other Energy Distribution Companies (EDC’s) in other regions, allocate a percentage of all rate-payer income for Low Income Usage Reduction Programs (LIURP’s), which provides cash payment for energy conservation housing improvements for both homeowners and renters seeking to reduce their home heating bills.

- Attic insulation
- Door and windows upgrades
